Of the four highschool basketball games I photographed yesterday in this gym, this was the best shot. The crowd was overflowing, leaving very little space for photographers to manoever, and the yellows penetrated everywhere. The light was poor. But the games in the City FamJuice Classic tournament in Philadelphia were outstanding.
F3.2; 1/800s; ISO: 16,000; Evaluative metering, 46mm, Canon 24-70mm F2.8L.
Congratulations to all the December winners, expecially my personal favorites!
